Wendy: Web Wizard!

Wendy has been helping us out since April 2009, when she participated in the Community Mapping Course-I. She's been learning Drupal fast and a lot of the posts in the Resources & Projects are by her (transferring material from the old Common Ground website to the original Drupal v.6 Community Mapping website in 2009, and once again migrating content from the v.6 website to v.7 Drupal in 2016). We are very lucky to have Wendy volunteering with us. If you want to learn some Drupal - talk to Wendy!
